Now, you can of course easily add a description and links to your pictures, to make it more engaging for your friends and followers. Any added link will still show up, it obviously just won’t expand into thumbnail and preview:
Adding a bunch of pictures for your week is very easy, here is how this then looks like:
Why should you Buffer pictures?
Whilst we have been testing this Buffer picture feature internally here at Buffer HQ, we found something quite stunning and surprising.
Posting pictures alongside a link, instead of thumbnails and preview gets us a lot more engagement. Of course, this appears to be obvious, yet at the same time, it isn’t something I tended to do.
Now, whenever I see a blogpost with a compelling picture, I rather go and share the picture itself alongside the link, just because this attracts a lot more engagement, clicks and shares.
Here is an example of when this worked very well with a blogpost:
That’s it again, I hope this feature will make sharing for you a little easier and smarter again. We have lots of plans to make picture sharing even easier for the future, I think this will be huge.
Over to you now. Have you been sharing more pictures lately than a few years ago? How do you think this can help with your Twitter and Facebook results?
